Do you kind of wish Pokemon cards had REAL creatures not FAKE creatures?
If so, you should join this facebook group. Or to discuss further, please go to http://friendfeed.com/phylomon.
Here’s part of what started this group and project: a friend of mine passed on this “letter to Santa:”
It quite nicely demonstrates an issue with advocates of biodiversity – that is, what can we do to get kids engaged with the wonderful creatures that are all around them? They obviously have the ability and the passion to care about such things, but it appears misplaced – they’ll spend a ton of resources and time tracking down fictional things, when they could easily do the same with the very wildlife around them. As a bonus, if they do learn a little more about biodiversity, they will hopefully appreciate their surroundings a little more, not to mention the possibility of just being outside a little more.
